Mission Impossible: Securing Master Keys

06/29/2021 ∙ by Hannes Salin, et al. ∙ 0

Securing a secret master key is a non-trivial task, we even argue it is impossible to fully secure it, hence we must make it as difficult as possible for any powerful adversary to steal or use the key. We introduce the reader to interesting cryptography which is starting to get more attention in terms of addressing the above problem, and we briefly overview some commercial and open-source products that can be used. Finally, we propose a set of solutions on how to secure master keys, more as guidelines rather than exact technical specifications, with aim to inspire and raise awareness of how to increase the security as much as possible.
